How the Eyes are Indicators of Health and Proper Personal Care


marieclaire.com
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but how healthy your eyes are tells a lot about you. And don't think that only blue, green or brown eyes are beautiful. Even simple black eyes can be a thing of beauty if you know how to care for them.

I think it's useless to say here that watching TV or gazing at the PC screen a long time can be harmful to your eyes. I mean, most times you can't but watch TV a long time or stare at the PC screen for long periods---unless you leave the city and live in the mountains.

So, given the urban living conditions today, how can you care for your eyes?

One, eat red and yellow fruits and vegetables. The bright red color is actually lycopene and is good for the eyes. The yellow or orange or yellow orange color is a flavonoid which is really an antioxidant that fights free radicals. Free radicals can weaken your eyes.

I love eating yellow bananas (don't laugh because there are red, blue and green bananas) and I heard that the black dots you see on the peel are really an indicator that they have more nutrition.

Anyway, if you lack luster and glow in the eyes, it may mean you have inner health problems, even serious ones, like liver or blood problems. The eyes are windows of the body and its internal systems. Doctors often look at them to see if they're healthy. Healthy eyes often mean good overall health. Christ himself gave a hint on this:

"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light."
Thus, to get rid of sick-looking eyes, stay on tiptop health and shape.

But tired eyes are another story altogether. You may be healthy inside but the body will get tired sooner or later with stress and prolonged physical activity. Tired eyes due to stress is what we don't want. Because stress is not remedied with rest. You have to get rid of the source of stress to get rid of tired eyes due to stress.

Get it?

But there are ways to help minimize tired or stressed eyes aside from getting rid of stress. So, while weeding out stress (example through exercise and mental relaxation), you can apply effective first aid remedies to make your eyes look good and full of life. Often, physical attraction starts from the eyes. So if you want to appear attractive to the opposite gender (or get extra plus points to possibly get hired), start with your eyes.

You wouldn't want to meet someone romantically or meet the big boss of a company when applying for a job with your eyes all puffy, with dark spots or wrinkle lines at the sides. And you've got to have a solution for this instantly, like right on the spot. What would you do?

Well, you have to have a ready and effective eye conditioner that's handy and easily fits your bag or pocket. It's also advisable for men. NLighten Eye Gel works wonders for this purpose. It literally deflates puffy eyes and eye bags within seconds or minutes.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Apple Stem Cell Health Benefits and Why You Need Them

We all know how advanced aging damages skin quality. But plant stem cells, especially from apples, were found to powerfully delay aging and its toll on the skin. This was discovered in many plant stem cell researches.  Stem cells are plant cells extracted from plant stems. As simple as that. So they're all-natural. And they divide and renew themselves continually as long as they're alive. Imagine if your cells are like that. Swiss Malus Domestica Apple plant stem cell (malus domestica) grown and enhanced in Switzerland since the 18th century is most apt for stimulating aging human skin stem cell, lessening unsightly skin wrinkles. It prolongs or extends the life of skin cells so you get a more youthful and radiant look.  When you age your skin cells' ability to divide slows down, unable to create enough new skin cells. So you get lots more of old or dying cells than new cells. These skin cells in your body must be replaced---and here is where the Swiss apple stem cells ent…
